- There should be an interval of at least 10 days for the second Umrah after one Umrah
- Authorities are preparing to tighten controls in the face of rising Kovid
Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has imposed restrictions on Umrah pilgrims in the wake of the growing spread of Koid in the country. The condition was that there should be an interval of at least 10 days for the second Umrah after one Umrah. But Saudi officials say the law applies not only to nationals but also to foreigners.
Foreigners are allowed to perform Umrah three times. Permission is granted to stay in the country for an additional 30 days. Perform three Umrahs during this time. But the break time must be followed exactly. Kovid code of conduct must be strictly adhered to, including mask understanding and social distance. Certificates of two-dose vaccination for those 12 years of age and older must be uploaded at the time of admission. The news was reported by local Saudi dailies quoting the ministry.
These rules apply to visits to mosques in Makkah and Madinah. Saudi Arabia has stepped in with more restrictions in the wake of an increase in Kovid cases in the country. Saudi Arabia had suspended Umrah in 2020 when the Kovid outbreak. Seven months later, in October 2020, Saudi Arabia granted permission for Umrah with strict restrictions.
The number of visitors to the mosques in Makkah and Madinah had increased due to the relaxation of Kovid restrictions. About 1,3500 people visit these places every day. But now the authorities are preparing to tighten the restrictions. Churchgoers have been advised to wear face masks and maintain social distance in the face of increasing number of Kovid cases.
